GCA Law Partners LLP was founded in 1988 as an alternative to large law practices, with the goal of providing responsive and cost-effective legal services to clients. Our firm is composed exclusively of highly experienced attorneys, most of whom were previously partners or senior attorneys with well-known large law firms in Northern California. Our unique (unleveraged) business model allows our attorneys to work directly with clients (ranging from first-time entrepreneurs to mature public companies). We are able to provide to our clients the skills and experience of partners at rates comparable to those charged by larger firms for more junior attorneys.
Our initials GCA come from our original firm name, General Counsel Associates, signifying our original mission to work with the officers and directors of companies to provide the range of advice and accessibility that they might expect from a general counsel. Our attorneys, several of whom have significant in-house experience, continue to work closely with in-house corporate counsel at many of our clients.
